There is nothing like spending the day in front of the television, binge-watching entertainment without even a commercial break. What's going on outside? What time is it? Am I doing OK, in general? Oh, who cares. A new study performed by TiVo (sure) has found that Breaking Bad is the show with which most people share this special time.
"Binge-watching" was defined by the study as three or more episodes per day. (Does that put anything into perspective for you?) Of the 15,000 people surveyed, 35 percent said they had, at one point or another, binged on Breaking Bad. From NBCNews:
"House of Cards" and "Game of Thrones" rounded out the top three binged shows at 29 percent and 25 percent, respectively. Overall, 91 percent of the 15,000 people surveyed said they have binge-watched a show at some point; 40 percent had done so within the past week, and 69 percent within the month.
They add that 14 percent of people admitted to watching an entire series or show in a single week, and that 23 percent admitted to doing so between one week and one month.
"Grampa loved telling us stories of his Breaking Bad binge-watching," your grandchildren will say, teary-eyed. "Once he Seamless'd two of the same meal—one for then, and one for later!"
